Background

Background

  • Number of recent studies investigating/highlighting hydro-climate nonstationarity

    Evaluation criteria

  • Level 1

    • Calibrate the hydrological model using complete period

    • Calculate the efficiency criteria (NSE, bias, NSEiQ) for each of the 5 sub-periods

  • Level 2

    • Calibrate the hydrological model using each of the 5 sub-periods

    • Calculate the efficiency criteria (NSE, bias, NSEiQ) for the complete period as well as each of the 5 sub-periods

  • Level 3

    • Improvement of model behaviour/performance in non-stationary conditions

      Objective function: NSE-bias of daily streamflow

Modelling experiments with conceptual rainfall runoff models under non stationary conditions

Changes in dominant hydrological processes(during long dry spells)

[Petheram et al., MODSIM, 2011]

Axe Creek catchment

  • Changing rainfall-runoff relationship.

  • Interception activities (like farm dams) intercepting proportionally more water during long dry spells.

  • Reduced surface water and groundwater connectivity during long dry spells.

  • Most rainfall filling the empty groundwater store post 1997.
